My six-year-old’s teacher made her sit by herself to eat her ‘smelly’ lunch then LIED about it, I’m furious | The Sun

A MUM has spoken out after her daughter's teacher made her sit alone at lunch time because her lunch was 'smelly'.

The anonymous woman took to Reddit to air her frustration after she confronted the teacher about the ordeal – only for her to lie about it.

She claims her daughter was forced to sit in an entirely separate room from her peers because of the 'smelly foods.'

The mum wrote: “My daughter is six but has been remote until a few months ago so she hasn’t physically been in school for long.

"Recently she told me she didn’t want her packed lunches anymore and wanted to eat what the other kids were eating.

“She had been not wanting to eat what were her favourite foods and opting for asking for pizza more.

"I asked her why she didn’t want to eat her favourite foods anymore and she told me she wanted to be able to sit with the other students.

“I was shocked because I didn’t know she wasn’t sitting with the other students and she told me it was because her teacher made her sit in the other room by herself during lunch times because she brought ‘smelly foods.’"

She added: "To be clear growing up I was also targeted by teachers who wouldn’t let me bring shrimp or anything with garlic or onion because they hated the smell. So I try not to pack anything that could cause them to target my child like spam sushi or egg fried rice."

The mum called up the teacher who denied her daughter was sitting alone, but the mum got it confirmed she had been from her daughter's peers and another teacher.

The teacher then switched stories, telling the mum: " It was because my daughter brought a persimmon to school and it was distracting the other kids because they thought she was eating a tomato and she didn’t want her distracting the other students by having ‘foreign’ food."

The teacher apparently did not see why this was inappropriate and the mum had to take her daughter out of the class and put into another.

She reported the teacher's actions to the head teacher – but was unsure on if she had made the right move.

But Reddit user's supported the mum, one wrote: "he teacher shouldn’t even be teaching if they’re going to discriminate and punish a kid just because she doesn’t have ‘Western’ foods. This will traumatise the kid and make her feel embarrassed of her own ethnicity.”

Another commented: "Any teacher making a little kid sit by herself during lunch is an a*****e. what the hell.”

A third penned: "This is extremely inappropriate of the teacher and in my opinion racist. I've worked with kids before and at that age the only reason I can see for separating a child for meals is if they had a food that was an allergy danger to other children or vice versa… maybe?"
